Stereotyping through the film (of Black servants, cliche Native-Americans and french women...), but oddly enough I found it to be enjoyable.
Good quality upload too!

Ok time waster
While it is fun to watch the character actors it would have been nice to have more Langford. No worse than most sitcoms, it has its moments.

This one was better than I thought it would be. I agree with Poplar House (reviewer below); Langford's singing really saves the film from being a little too corny. I especially liked the song 'Big Stuff'; that little girl was too cute and Langford sang the song beautifully. I remember Langford singing 'Once Upon a Wintertime' in the Disney cartoon musical 'Melody Time'; it was terrific. If you find the movie unbearable, at least 'fast forward' and watch this number (it's towards the last 1/3 of the film I think). The way that the trumpet player licks his lips before he played was so weird and annoying; then again, he's supposed to be that way I guess. I thought the ending was terrible. Overall a pretty good film

A jamboree of familiar faces
Dixie Jamboree (PRC, 1944) is a fun musical loaded with character actors. It stars Frances Langford, Guy Kibbee, Eddie Quillen, and Charles Butterworth. Lyle Talbot is getting a little thicker in this movie, more like his TV self. Frank Jenks, Louise Beavers, Fifi DOrsay, Joe Devlinwhat a cast! The plot involves disreputable sharps trying to steal the formula for a booze-like elixer from a riverboat captain, but it's the parade of character actors and Langford's singing that make this worth watching.
